What are the causes of Amblyopia?
2 years ago
Amblyopia can be caused by any condition or illness that makes the eye blur an image or makes the brain prefer one eye. Common causes include: strabismus (when the eyes are not positioned straight) unequal eye focusing (when one eye focuses differently than the other) cataract (clouding of the lens) severe ptosis (droopy eyelids) premature birth heredity (when a child inherits amblyopia from parents with strabismus) any disease that affects the eye.
